PM MODI Speech on Corona virus 24-3-2020 8 p.m.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the nation at 8 PM on Tuesday on the coronavirus outbreak.
"Will address the nation at 8 PM today, 24th March 2020, on vital aspects relating to the menace of Covid-19," Modi tweeted.
Nearly 500 coronavirus cases have been reported in India so far, according to Health Ministry data on Tuesday.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the nation at 8 pm on Tuesday and discuss key aspects of the Covid-19 disease that has killed nine and infected 492 people in India, he announced on Twitter.
This is the second time in a week when he will address the country on the fast-spreading disease with flu-like symptoms that has infected 377,400 people across the world and killed over 16,500.
“I will share some important things with the countrymen regarding the global outbreak of coronavirus outbreak. Today, 24 March I will address the country at 8 pm,” his tweet read.
He had addressed the nation on efforts to combat the virus on March 19, and asked people to show their appreciation for medical and essential workers by clapping for them for five minutes at 5pm on Sunday from their balconies. Hundreds, however, ended up gathering in streets in several cities, beating plates and blowing conch shells, despite restrictions imposed in view of 'Janata Curfew' to arrest the spread of the virus.
